  1. If no one did they'd have nothing to be grateful for, but then if everyone did - they'd have even less to be grateful for...

  2. I like your thinking here, and the way you personify the fruit. Every time I have a banana or an apple, I'll think of this!

  4. But I have a couple of great fruits every day! I'll have to eat them quicker to stop them grumbling :-)

    Loved the humour in this.

  10. Hi Anthony, you know what they say: "You can't have your greatfruits and eat 'em." Can you?

    Paisley, Phew, that was all one sentence! (only joking) Loved your post today!

  19. Hi SSQuo, Nice to meet you! Thanks for speaking up for greatfruits, they usually get such a bad press!

  20. wow stg, how long did it take you to come up with this one?? (yes, i'm being sarcastic here) you must have written this after a few jars down the pub. do you know what would make me grateful? if you would stop writing such trite and misguided poems. my main problem with it is that fruit loves to be eaten!! much better than going moldy in the fruitbowl, surely? why don't you try actually thinking about what you're saying rather than flinging together a few words that sound sort of similar.

  21. Hi Ruth, thanks for the reality check! It took me three minutes and thirty years of experience to create this little Haiku. If I had been down the pub, I probably wouldn't have written it. Anyway,It's lovely to hear from you and I'll try my best to try harder next time I write something. Oh, by the way, the last time I ate a greatfruit it bit me back! Finally, here's a link to a little something I wrote for you - http://mcfcuk.blogspot.com/2006/10/for-ruth.html

  22. What is this? A new breakfast cereal? I don't get it. All these comments and I don't know what you're talking about. Is someone secretly paying you to do this? I think you should come clean on this before a militant mob of thousands is outside your abode waiting to pelt you with . . uh. . gratefruits?

  23. Hi Jack, It's mad isn't it? But who'd have thought that gratefruits were a microcosm of the planet uranus? You'll need to read that one carefully, perhaps! Hope this helps. Andy
